**CANCELLED** – Synthesis for Policy in Amazonia: A Participatory Approach to Tackling Threats to Biodiversity

May 10 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

In light of safety concerns arising from recent campus events the event scheduled for May 10th between the Center for Brazilian Studies and CTR is cancelled “Synthesis for Policy: A Participatory Approach to Tackling Threats to Biodiversity.”

Evidence-informed solutions are urgently needed to tackle the climate and biodiversity crises – the 21st-century’s most significant challenges. Multiple stressors threaten Amazonia’s socio-ecological importance, highlighting the need for coordinated efforts to mitigate these threats. Effective engagement with policy, decision-makers, non-governmental organizations and local communities can improve research development and conservation planning success. This presentation analyzes stakeholder-based solutions to the main threats to Amazonian biodiversity.


James Moura Jr. is a Senior Research Associate at the University of Bristol, UK—Synthesis for Policy in Amazonia (SynPAm). He is also an Associate Professor at the University for the International Integration of Afro-Brazilian Lusophony, Brazil, and a Visiting Professor at the Community, Indigenous, Liberation, and Ecopsychology Psychology Program at Pacifica Graduate Institute.
